The paper is motivated by the assumption that the theatrics can be artistically synthesized to create a play script or performance that can be more aesthetically and ideologically appreciated than the novel. In view of this motivation and to inspire many effective adaptations of the novel, the following questions need to be...

Background and contextualism in traditional Iranian architecture are one of its inseparable features. However, in the contemporary era after the emergence of modernism in the West, attention to the field intensified. One of the types of contextualism is climate contextualism, which pays special attention to climate strategies. Iran has different climatic regions, so each region creates its climate. This climatic context has greatly contributed to the sustainability of old buildings and cities....

Literature has been used and is still being used as a tool for solving societal problems in different nations at different times. Urban literature is a good example of literature that addresses and analyses societal problems. The European novel developed simultaneously with Western urban civilization (Ihekweazu 1992). Some critics argue that modernity finds adequate expression in the city novel as in novels like Zola’s Paris (1898), James Joyce’s Ulysses (1921), John Dos Passos’ Manhattan...

Far from being an entirely textual engagement, translation is a completely intellectual enterprise. Some translation practitioners and theorists have perhaps erroneously tended to postulate that translation involves the mere replacement of lexicons in one language with lexicons in another language. This position has led to the concept of source language text (SLT) and target language (TLT). In this article, we are not in any way condemning the idea of translation constituting a linguistic...

After the 70s, line drawing also paid attention to values of words and letters too, among them some conceptual artists, with the pursuit...
